Jobs: Cognitive Sci: Post-bac Research Fellows, University of Maryland
Editor for this issue: Luiza Newlin Lukowicz
The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use
non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge
that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity,
nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we
have no means of enforcing these standards.
Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding
employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international
employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been
set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Multiple Research Assistant/Fellowship Positions
The Department of Linguistics at the University of Maryland is looking to
fill up to three full-time positions for post-baccalaureate researchers.
Starting date for all positions is summer or fall 2009. Salary is
competitive, with benefits included. The positions would be ideal for
individuals with a B.A. degree who are interested in gaining significant
research experience in a very active lab as preparation for a research
career. Applicants must be US or Canadian citizens or permanent residents,
and should have completed a B.A. or B.S. degree by the time of appointment.
Previous experience in linguistics is required, and relevant research
experience is preferred.
Applicants may request to be considered for all positions. Review of
applications for all positions will begin immediately, and will continue
until the positions are filled. For best consideration, apply by April 21st.
Position #1: Research Assistant in Psycholinguistics/Cognitive Neuroscience
This person will take a leading role in research projects in
psycholinguistics and cognitive neuroscience of language. The person will
be involved in all aspects of the design, testing and analysis of studies
of language comprehension in adults, using behavioral and neuroscientific
techniques, including ERP and MEG brain recordings (training provided). The
person will also play a key role in the management of an active lab group.
Previous experience in linguistics and/or psycholinguistics is preferred.
The ability to interact comfortably with a wide variety of people (and
machines) is a distinct advantage. The position is for a one year initial
appointment, with the possibility of extension beyond that time. For more
information contact Dr Colin Phillips, colinumd.edu.
Positions #2-#3: Baggett Research Fellowships 2009-2010
One-year Baggett Fellowships are full-time positions intended for
individuals with a B.A. or B.S. degree who are interested in gaining
research experience in an active interdisciplinary environment before
pursuing graduate study in some area of linguistics or cognitive science.
One or two fellowship positions are available for the 2009-2010 year.
Salary is competitive, with benefits included.
Applicants for all positions should submit a cover letter (outlining
relevant background and interests, including potential faculty mentors), a
current CV, and names and contact information for 3 potential referees
(letters are not needed as part of the initial application), and a writing
sample. Fuller details at http://www.ling.umd.edu/baggett. All application
materials should be submitted electronically to Jeff Lidz (see contact
information below). NOTE: Put 'Baggett Fellowship' in the subject line.
Prospective fellows should feel free to send a preliminary letter of
interest to Dr Lidz or Dr Phillips.
The Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Lab is a well-integrated community
of over 40 faculty, students and research staff, engaged in research on
many areas of language, ranging from acoustics to semantics, in children
and adults, normal and disordered populations, and covering around 10
languages. The lab has facilities for behavioral testing of infants,
children and adults, two eye-tracking labs, an ERP lab and a whole-head MEG
facility. The lab is affiliated with the Department of Linguistics and with
the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science Program.
The University of Maryland is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunities
Title IX employer. Women and minority candidates are especially encouraged
